At the beginning, an artist has a picture before his eyes, the next step is, that he makes different drafts. Step by step the figure is developed and it does not play a role whether it is Saint Mary, the Crucified, a Saint, a rural person in its work clothes or an animal, which is wood carved according to a model. Only high-quality Linden-trees, Maple and Cembra pine wood is used for the carvings. A sculptor tries to combine his skill and patience with the best wood block in order to achieve the sculpture he is looking for.
How is a sculpture carved?
And when it is often said, that wood carvings have their price, then it is only true. Please consider that a tree must be at least 75 years old and the wood must be dried in a natural way for several years. This is so important, because never ever should carved sculpture get cracked. And we cannot use the wood core of a trunk for our carvings. All that is relevant a long time before the artist can begin his work in order to form a piece of fine art in wood.
In the workshop a draft of a new sculpture is made in clay. Subsequently, a model is carved in wood and already this model is copy right protected. A sculpture model is always carved by one of the very best wood sculptors. The difficult and lengthy treatment from the first step to completion, requires a highly talented artist.
Many people love sculptures in their natural wood colour, in which the fine grain remains visible in all details. Others again like painted sculptures and here you can also find top workmanship. Although each piece of art is made according to a master model, each item has its unmistakable expression and character. Therefore, we ask you cordially to remember, that there could always be a deviation in colour and facial expression.
And now we may wish you much joy with our Internet offer and that you find what your heart demands.
